Each year there is a struggle to not just field the best team in fantasy football, but also have the best team name. Here are good fantasy football team names. Most are based on player names. (Note: Some of these names will not be appropriate for everyone. More will be added before the season starts)
Here are some good rookie Fantasy Football Team Names.
The A-Trains (Devon Achane/The Boys)- Achane has speed and a similar-sounding name to the character from The Boys.
Bijan Mustardson (Bijan Robinson)- Bijan has a name that sounds like Dijon Mustard and he already has his own line of it.
Mingo’s Dingos (Jonathan Mingo)- It is always fun when a player’s name rhymes with an animal name.
Boutte Boutte Boutte Rocking Everywhere (Kayshon Boutte/Ms. New Booty)- Kayshon Boutte has a name that will be used by a lot of fantasy managers if he is able to be productive.
Dr. Strange (Brenton Strange/Dr. Strange)- Having the same last name as a Marvel character will pay off for Strange’s popularity.
I Can Buy Myself Flowers (Zay Flowers/Flowers)- Flowers was a popular song just a short time ago and Zay Flowers could be used in plenty of team names.
Tank’s Tanks (Tank Bigsby)- A running back with the name tank is one of the coolest things about this year’s rookie class.
Hyatt Hotels (Jaylin Hyatt/Hyatt Hotels)- Jalin Hyatt sharing the same name as a hotel chain can be fortuitous for him.
Young and the Restless (Bryce Young/The Young and the Restless)- Young has a name that can be used in a few different ways.
Players That Have Been Around A While
Note: You may have seen these names before, but they are some good Fantasy Football Team Names.
See Ya in the Hall of Fame (Breece Hall)- Hall has a long way to go, but he is the rookie running back with the easiest path to early production.
Gangs of London (Drake London/Gangs of London)- London just happens to share his name with one of the world’s most famous cities.
Shot of Jameson (Jameson Williams/Jameson Irish Whiskey)- Jameson is a cool first name and he should be sponsored by Jameson Irish Whiskey.
Shot of Skyy (Skyy Moore/Skyy Vodka)- Another player with a perfect name for an ad deal.
Golden Corral (Matt Corral/Golden Corral)- Matt Corral shares the last name with the buffet-style restaurant.
Ty Davis-Price is Right (Ty Davis-Price/The Price is Right)- In the 49er’s offense, his chances of constant production is the same as winning a game show!
Walker Texas Ranger (Ken Walker/Walker Texas Ranger)- Walker has a last name Chuck Norris would love.
Slim Pickens (George Pickens/Slim Pickens)- George Pickens has NFL bloodlines, but his name is shared with an actor from Blazing Saddles.
Haskins Robbins (Hassan Haskins/Baskin Robbins)- If Haskins is on the roster and fans think about ice cream a lot, like this author, this is a natural team name.
For Whom the Bell Tolls (David Bell/Metallica)- Whether it is being used to reference Metallica or Ernest Hemingway, David Bell opens up a lot of avenues for a team name.
Do You Wanna Ring the Bell? (David Bell/Rocky 3)- Apollo and Rocky spar at the end of Rocky 3 when this line comes out.
Grab Your Magic Wan’Dale (Wan’Dale Robinson/Harry Potter)- I’m no Harry Potter fan, but Wizards need wands.
What You Talking About Willis? (Malik Willis/Different Strokes)- This phrase started in Different Strokes and has extended into many different areas of pop culture..
I’m Likely Going to Win (Isaiah Likely)- Isaiah Likely is a good player, but may be more well-known for his last name/jersey meme.
It’s T-Law (Trevor Lawrence)- Trevor Lawrence will be in the league for a long time.
Masterbateman (Rashod Bateman)- No explanation needed.
Leave it all on the Fields (Justin Fields)- There are so many saying with Fields’ name in it to go after if he is on a fantasy roster.
It’s all about the Chase (Ja’Marr Chase)- There will be a lot of defenders chasing Ja’Marr Chase in the years to come.
Pitt’s Creek (Kyle Pitts/Schitt’s Creek)- Kyle Pitts will have a lot of team names surrounding him in the coming years.
Marshall Law (Terrace Marshall Jr.)- Hopefully Marshall plays well enough that Marshall law will not need to be enforced.
Show me the Toney (Kadarius Toney/Jerry Maguire)- There is a famous scene in Jerry Maguire, where star receiver Rod Tidwell (played by Cuba Gooding Jr.) yells, “Show me the money!” several times over.
Scary Terry (Tamorrion Terry/Rick and Morty)- Terry may not produce from day one, but he could be real scary for defenses once he does.
Love Stinks (Jordan Love/Aaron Rodgers/The Wedding Singer)- Aaron Rodgers‘ fans already know that the Packers drafted his eventual replacement in Jordan Love. In the Adam Sandler film “The Wedding Singer”, a classic song was performed which is probably aligning with what Rogers and his fans are thinking.
Get Swifty (D’Andre Swift/Rick and Morty)- D’Andre Swift is a rookie running back for the Detroit Lions who will be getting a lot of work. Rick and Morty had a great song called “Get Schwifty” which could be the feel of an owner’s team.
CeeDees TDs (CeeDee Lamb)- Whether it’s just because it rhymes or has some raunchy implications, CeeDees TDs will be a popular fantasy team next year.
The Silence of the Lambs (CeeDee Lamb/The Silence of the Lambs)- Lamb’s name is right in the title of an absolute classic movie.
It Takes Tua to Make a Thing Go Right (Tua Tagovailoa/ It Takes Two)- The rookie quarterback out of Alabama has a great name to play off of for fantasy football. Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock have a song that could easily be parodied for Tua.
It Takes Tua to Tango (Tua Tagovailoa)- A classic saying for the Dolphins’ rookie quarterback.
Joe Burrow Tiger King (Joe Burrow/Tiger King)- Burrow played at LSU and now is a Bengal making him the king of tigers. It just so happens that the one of the biggest cultural trends before he was selected was the docuseries, “Tiger King”.
Golden Tee (Tee Higgins/Golden Tee)- Everyone has been to a bar with the Golden Tee video games and Tee Higgins could help fantasy teams bring home some gold trophies this season.
Higgins’ Diamond Dogs (Tee Higgins/Ted Lasso)- Ted Lasso is a great show and Higgins is a unique character who is part of the Diamond Dogs.
Shut Up Mimsy! (Denzel Mims/South Park)- The Mims name strikes again, but this time with a little-used character in South Park.
Dobbins is a Free Elf! (JK Dobbins/Harry Potter)- I am not a Harry Potter fan, but there are a lot out there. JK Dobbins just happens to have a similar name to one of the best characters in the franchise.
Gordon’s Mighty Ducks (Melvin Gordon/Mighty Ducks)- Gordon’s last name is the same as the first name of the best coach of all time, the Minnesota Miracle Man, Gordon Bombay. The Mighty Ducks are a rag-tag bunch of kids who rally together to win a championship and several fantasy teams are the same way.
Rudolph the Redzone Reindeer (Kyle Rudolph/Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer)- Rudolph has never shied away from his connection to the famous Christmas creature. He proved his red zone prowess in the NFC Playoffs last season.
I Would Walk 500 Miles (Miles Sanders/Miles Boykin/The Proclaimers)- Miles is a decently common name and also a major theme of a song that was a hit, but also popularized by the show “How I Met Your Mother”.
What Can Brown do for you? (Marquise Brown/Antonio Brown/A.J. Brown/John Brown/UPS)- Any team that has a player with the last name of Brown needs to consider the old UPS slogan, “What can Brown do for you?”
Snell Ya Later (Benny Snell)- Benny Snell strikes again.
See You in Snell (Benny Snell)- Snell’s name is too easy.
DJ Got us Fallin’ in Love (D.J. Chark/David Johnson/Usher)- If D.J. Chark does well or David Johnson comes back to fantasy relevancy this season, they could have everyone remembering this banger by Usher.
Minshew Mania (Gardner Minshew)- Minshew is a cult hero already and deserves his own fantasy team name.
Pop Lock and Drop it (Drew Lock/Huey)- Lock is an up and coming player and could remind people of this song, which almost has 50 million views on Youtube.
McLaurin F1 (Terry McLaurin/McLaren F1)- Terry Mclaurin has the speed and can easily be compared to the F1 racing team.
The Golladay Season (Kenny Golladay)- The holiday season is right around playoff time, so if Golladay is on the roster, hopefully he will come through in the clutch.
Free Aaron Jones (Aaron Jones)- Aaron Jones has been a good running back for a few years, but was fully unleashed last season. Anyone who has owned him over the last few years knows that Jones needs to be set free.
You Play Ball Like a Gurley (Todd Gurley/The Sandlot)- Girls kick ass, but one of the best movie lines of all time is, “You play ball like a girl!” in “The Sandlot”. Todd Gurley‘s name helps make the connection complete.
Run CMC (Christian McCaffrey/Run DMC)- A common fantasy team name pairs one of the best players in the league with an early, great rap group.
King of the Hill (Tyreek Hill/Taysom Hill)- Hank Hill would’ve been a great fantasy running back, but chose to sell propane instead. This motivational speech may give a team of Tyreek or Taysom Hill the right kick in the pants to win a championship.
DK’s Country (DK Metcalf/Donkey Kong)- DK Metcalf had a great rookie season and happens to have the same first name as the initials of a famous video game character.
Kelley’s Conspiracies- Joshua Kelley was just drafted, but for any fans of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” they’ll recognize the last name Kelly and remember one of the greatest tv scenes in history.
James Conner: The Terminator (James Conner/The Terminator)- The Terminator is actually John Conner, but it still fits. James Conner has battled injuries, beaten cancer and been a productive running back in the NFL. He is tough as nails and he’ll be back this year.
Bitchin’ Kamara (Alvin Kamara/Bitchin’ Camaro)- My Aunt Vicky showed me this video and asked if anyone had this name yet. Kamara is pretty bitchin’.
Note: These are names if you have a combination of players, but here are some good Fantasy Football Team Names.
Boston TE Party (Patriots’ TEs/Boston Tea Party)- The Patriots drafted two tight ends in the 2020 NFL Draft and just happen to play in the city of a great historical event.
2 Many Cooks in the Kitchen (Dalvin Cook/Brandin Cooks/James Cook)- A roster with both Dalvin Cook and Brandin Cooks might have two many cooks in the kitchen. Add in rookie James Cook (Dalvin’s Brother) as a possible teammate.
Double Piercing (Alec Pierce/Dameon Pierce)– These unrelated rookies can combine for a cool name.
